On November 18, the refining expansion project at Jilin Petrochemical, including production plants and auxiliary facilities, were successfully put into operation, enhancing the company's annual crude processing capacity from 7.5 million tons to 10 million tons.

The expansion project at Jilin Petrochemical refers to the construction of a 6Mt/a atmospheric-vacuum distillation unit, a 1.4Mt/a catalytic cracking unit, a 600kt/a gas fractionation unit, a 1.6Mt/a diesel hydrogenation unit, a 1.2Mt/a gasoline hydrogenation unit and a 20kt/a sulfur recovery facilities.

Once become operational, Jinlin Petrochemical will provide additionally 860,000 tons of ethylene and propylene every year, which will drive the development of downstream products such as ethylene, acrylonitrile and ABS. Moreover, the operation of the expansion project will also help Jilin Petrochemical further integrate its refining and chemical operation, upgrade its GBⅢ gasoline and diesel oil, and rise the proportion of high grade gasoline production from 50% to 70%.
